Vivo Sano: Spanish video on EDCs launched

Vivo Sano has produced a short documentary on the threat to our health from exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

Doctors and scientists in Spain and elsewhere in Europe describe their research linking endocrine disrupters to rising rates of infertility, early puberty, and hormone-dependent cancers. An infertility doctor compares the ocean’s inability to break down a plastic bag with the human body’s failure to get rid of these chemical compounds, which mimic our hormones once they have been ingested.

Entitled “In small print”, the video is now available online in English at

It is also available in Spanish, entitled “La letra pequeña”, at

The Vivo Sano’s campaign website page features clips from the video (in Spanish)
